--> --Lestroisrois
One of the more active members of the role-playing section, Lestroisrois is known for making some of the most unique navis on the site, as well as having an unusual battle style. Lestroisrois is the creator of Life of a Code, one of the two major role=playing stories on the site.
* AmbiguousGender: Refuses to reveal their gender, stating "it's fun to let people guess." One guess ended up having Lestroisrois as a dead Ninja-Pirate-Zombie-Vampire-Space-Robot-Mage-Tortoise.
* ShownTheirWork: Lestroisrois is well known for using accurate information and realistic science for explanations. This is especially shown in Life of a Code's Chapter 0, where Lestroisrois prevented a player from climbing outside the high-speed train by using shatter-proof glass designed to be removed with a few switches...on the inside of the window, meaning removing the Driver's window was highly unlikely.

FamilyBusiness: Runs his jewelry store with the help of his wife [[spoiler:and daughter.]]
* Hide ProfessionalGambler: Almost became this; if not for his wife, he could have ended up using the winnings from the [=StraightMan=] incident to make even more money, but instead swore off gambling (mostly) and instead opened his own jewelry store.
* ShownTheirWork: Lestroisrois made sure that when Daniel presented the Ruby Tear, the information about it (including its rough worth, where the items are from, etc.) are actually based on Real-Life jewelry-crafting information.
-->"Ah, has the Ruby Tear caught your eye? The necklace is handcrafted in solid 12 karat yellow gold from a region in Northern Netopia. Embedded are 12 sparkling rubies of ½ carat each, with the 13th central ruby being 1.2 carats. It comes with a certificate of authentication, and a guarantee that the craftsmanship is solid; I'd know, since I made it myself. As for a lower price...how about we haggle a bit. The piece is worth 55000 zenny, but I might be able to drop the price a bit further..."
-->--Daniel
** Despite the names of locations and monetary system being fake, they represent real locations and money; "a region in Northern Netopia" is the equivalent of Northern Germany and Scandinavia, where yellow-gold is mined, as well as zenny being the equivalent to yen, placing his price of 55000 zenny as roughly 550 [=USD=].

** Often announces his presence by shouting "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN~!"
** "Lucky~!"
** At the start of a fight: "Battle-da!"
** Additionally, his speech is constantly peppered with references to luck, gambling, and anything related to card games.

The seventh team Lestroisrois made. Ice and Canon were a concept Lestroisrois had been working on since his cancelled battle with North888's [=Revenant.VEXE=]. The end of their first battle lead Lestroisrois to change their account title from "Virus Breeder" to "Maker of Monsters".
!!"Ice" [=McCoy=]
A high-level City-netbattler and a professional security/bodyguard. Outside of battle, he's a cheerful and kind young boy. In battle and when on duty, he's as serious as his nickname implies.
* LawEnforcementInc / PrivateMillitaryContractors: Pallas Corp was founded by his parents, and is a corporation specializing in security and bodyguard work. Ice is very high ranked in the corporation without any influence from his parents; he earned a high position at age 7 my merit of his skills alone.
* TheMcCoy: Complete coincidence, but one of the driving factors for Ice is that he feels the right choice is to help people.
* RedOniBlueOni: He is both in one being. When off duty/outside of a netbattle, Ice is a kind and caring individual who goes out of his way to help people. When on duty or in a netbattle, he is cold, calculating, and ruthless to his enemies.
* ReluctantWarrior: There's a reason he's considered a prodigy and a skilled bodyguard.
* TrickedOutShoes: His shoes receive their own, heavily detailed description.
!!Canon.EXE
Ice's Navi. A powerful navi with three different forms, each specialized for a different type of combat. Acts similarly to Ice, but with a mischievous streak and known to correct him when he acts informally.
* AmbiguousGender: Lestroisrois uses the pronouns "s/he" and "hir" to refer to Canon.
* BFG: Canon uses a Cannon.
* BulletholeDoor: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]. Canon does this in hir battle with Finny using a minimal number of shots, but [url=http://www.mmbnchronox.com/forum/thread-1698-post-51649.html#pid51649]Lestroisrois states Out of Character that the only reason for the low number of shots was for gameplay balance reasons[/url].
* CombatStilettos: Mirror Canon has [i]armored[/i] combat stilettos.
* CountingBullets: Canon possesses a limited ammunition with hir cannon for gameplay reasons, which (usually) maxes out at six.
* CurbStompBattle: Canon vs. Maw. Canon's tactics were so overwhelming that [url=http://www.mmbnchronox.com/forum/post-43564.html#pid43564]Maw's player became unable to figure out a plausible escape[/url].
* DeathFromAbove: Many of Canon's attacks send something crashing down from above, including hirself.
* DramaticGunCock / KineticClicking: In Canon's opening scene, s/he takes down some punk navis by just smacking hir cannon into them before pointing the barrel at the (pinned) leader's head and making an audible *click* before reaffirming that s/he has clearance to [[NeverSayDie delete]] them.
* DropTheHammer: Canon often slams hir cannon into enemies as if it were a battering ram/giant hammerhead.
* DualWielding / GunsAkimbo: Rhythmic Canon can transform hir cannon into a pair of pistols.
* FiringOneHanded: With a Giant Cannon.
* FlashStep: The speed's Canon can reach thanks to hir cannon propelling hir is pretty much this.
* GroundPound: [[UpToEleven Taken to extremes]], one of Canon's ultimate attacks has hir send hirself high into the sky before dive-bombing and crashing into hir opponent, dealing massive damage and destroying the nearby area.
* ItWorksBetterWithBullets: Any attempt to use Canon's cannon by anyone else will fail. The cannon is effectively a part of hir, hence no one else can successfully wield it but hir.
* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Most Navis fire lasers from their busters or use elemental attacks or energy swords. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Canon fires cannonballs]].
* LightningBruiser: Possibly turning out to be this.
* MeaningfulName / PunnyName: Canon uses a Cannon as well as several attacks that respond to him hitting a target with hitting a target. Also, almost all of hir attacks hit multiple times in a row by doing the same thing over and over.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Despite a lack of muscle-tone, Canon single-handedly swings a cannon as big as s/he is around single handed.
* NoRangeLikePointBlankRange: Often, Canon will slam hir cannon into someone only to immediately follow up by shooting them.
* RecoilBoost: And how! Literally uses hir cannon to rocket around the battlefield, or into the skies above only to come crashing down on hir enemies.
* RocketJump: Several attacks use the momentum of firing the cannon to launch Canon through the air, sometimes vertically.
* SwissArmyWeapon: As Rhythmic Canon, hir cannon can transform into dual pistols and back. Both forms are used as melee weapons is some way or another.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: See CurbStompBattle above.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Has yet to be seen without hir helmet on, which is white and for the most part featureless.
